Protect your whole family naturally this summer with our new 100% natural mineral sunscreen with SPF30 broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Safe 100% natural ingredients: your toxin-free, clean sunscreen choice this summer.  

  • Non-greasy feel: smooth, lightweight and sits comfortably on the skin, which makes it great for both face and body.
  • Baby-safe: suitable for all ages 3m+.
  • Eczema-friendly: gentle on the most sensitive skin, including eczema-prone.
  • Reef-friendly: no chemicals, making it a better option to safeguard aquatic life and their habitats.
  • A little goes a long way: no water, preservatives or filler ingredients. Every ingredient chosen has a purpose! 
  • Pleasant aroma: with hints of lavender and coconut, this sunscreen smells like summer. Sunscreen doesn't need to smell bad! 
  • Eco-conscious packaging: 75g in a recyclable 100% sugarcane tube, making it easy to apply and convenient for summer adventures while lessening one's carbon footprint. Why sugarcane?
  • Locally made: made here in Aotearoa with love.

How does it work? Rather than being absorbed into the skin like a traditional chemical-based sunscreen, the mineral UV filters (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in this case – read more about ingredients here) sit on top of the skin and deflect and/or block harmful UV rays in a similar fashion to protective clothing. Mineral sunscreens with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are widely considered to be the gentlest and safest sun care products.

"Mineral sunscreens are like a healthy, home-cooked meal, while chemical sunscreens are like the fast food of sunscreens" – Lauren Ploch, MD, a USA board-certified dermatologist.

How is this different to your previous sunscreen "Sun-Barrier Cream"? Firstly, and most importantly, the new formula has undergone rigorous SPF testing in line with the new AS/NZS 2604:2021 standards and has been formulated in conjunction with cosmetic chemists. With a nod to our original formula, it contains most of the original ingredients with the same nostalgic aroma. We have added extra ingredients to: 

  • super-charge the SPF
  • keep the UV filters that protect your skin evenly distributed throughout the formulation
  • enhance the skin feel
  • delivered to you in a convenient tube (made from 100% sugarcane), making your summer adventures easier

Fancy a sunscreen applicator for less mess? The Solar Buddies sunscreen applicator dispenses our sunscreen well in temperatures over 15 degrees. Click here for more information.

For best practice, while having fun in the sun, remember the saying "SLIP, SLOP, SLAP and WRAP". As well as applying SPF-rated sunscreen, this includes wearing a hat, sunglasses, and protective clothing and seeking shade where possible to avoid direct exposure to UV rays. 

Our sunscreen is tested against and meets AS/NZS 2604:2021 standards. Test results available below.

Love - great natural solution

I’ve been looking for a good natural sunscreen for my 18month old nature lover and this has been a great solution! That you NA for creating this for us!

Belinda B (Wellington, NZ)
Highly recommend!

Have bought this sunscreen from a stockist, but wanted to say that it is fab! I'm using it on my 7 month old and it's great. I prefer it over a well known sun gel for babies.

Favourite Sunscreen for my eczema suffering Toddler!

This is by far the best sunscreen I've tried on my toddler who suffers with bad eczema. It doesn't seem to flare his eczema up like some of the others did. I love the smell and it's easy to apply. It does leave a bit of white but don't mind too much.

Nicole (Auckland, NZ)
Great stuff!

I really like this sunscreen. It smells great and isn’t thick like most mineral sunscreens. The consistency is more creamy so it rubs in easily. Have stocked up!! Thanks for another brilliant product.

Gotta love this stuff

I got a sample sachet at the baby expo and tried it in my grandie who’s just 4 months. Her skin reacted well to it. It has a pleasant smell and doesn’t feel greasy or sticky. I’m on here to order a full size tube now. We love this stuff.
